Williwaw.
Dutton, New York 1946 - First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original black cloth. Signed by the author on the half title page. Very good plus in a very good dust jacket. Williwaw was Gore Vidal's first publication, and it earned him the reputation as "the best all-around American man of letters since Edmund Wilson"(Newsweek). The military novel marked the beginning of his writing career, aged twenty-one, and is based upon his Alaskan Harbor Detachment duty. Williwaw is a quasi-autobiographical novel, and its value comprises not merely Vidal's excellent writing but the insight it offers into the author's experiences. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
